My little adventurer is now 11 months old. I can't believe we will soon be bringing in the new year and celebrating her 1st birthday! Where did my baby go? This last month she has given Mommy quite the workout. She never sits still very long, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. She has started listening to the word Mom hates saying, but finds herself saying numerous times a day, "NO!" She will even shake her head along with Mommy's chorus of no's. We are also exploring the world of words and repeating words that we hear others saying. She is still enjoying climbing on anything and everything and has found that she can move many objects around the house and use them as a stool to get a boost up to what she really wants. Dancing has also become our new favorite thing to do. She will head bang and dance every time she hears music play. This little monkey is quite exhausting, but she is so fun to watch. She is a very happy baby and it's always easy to get a smile and a laugh out of her.
